Iwasaki Library

For Faculty

Course reserves are readings set aside by faculty for student use. Materials such as books and case studies move from the library’s existing collections to the Library Service Desk. Materials may also be purchased on request. Additionally, instructors may place personal copies of resources on reserve as needed. E-Reserves, such as journal articles and book chapters, can be digitized, or linked through a course's Canvas page.
